So excited! I was fortunate enough to snag Costco’s Wine Advent Calendar, which features half bottles of mystery wines neatly tucked behind twenty-four numbered portals into the world of wine. My immediate thoughts were “what a fun way to try a variety of wines…. and…. a great way to explore their unique destinations!” Here’s hoping you’re as curious as I am and will enjoy discovering a bit about the unique locality represented by each wine. Chances are there will be some of your favorite past travel destinations, or a few new ones to add to your travel list.

Since there are many resources that discuss tasting notes, varietals, food pairings, etc. of these wines, I will not include those here. The location of the wine as it relates to travel will be my focus.
So I present to you, over the course of two dozen installments, the 2020 Costco Wine Advent Calendar wine destinations. And although it’s not Advent just yet, I thought I’d present these a little early in anticipation of the holiday season and as inspiration for 2021-2022 travel.
Cheers to discovering these wine destinations! Looking forward to your comments and thoughts of these destinations.
